  • There are no surprises among the characters — depressed mom (Amy Jo Johnson), controlling aunt (Cynthia Stevenson), new boyfriend (Tatanka Means) — but the cast is strong enough to build on familiar elements. show more

    Lovely, lovely movie. Willa steals the movie and your heart with her delicate intonation on a difficult subject matter. Movie is a little rough around the edges, but she more than makes up for it. Best part: no wizards and dragons and computer generated car chases and doom and glum.
